Lately I have been reading a lot on the whole debate about daily lolita vs conlitas (wearing lolita only to meetups or anime cons, so that is pretty much what I am) and trying to think about the best way to transition eventually to wearing it more often.
Other than the whole “expensive clothes I am terrified of spilling chemicals on because I work in a lab” excuse. But I do want to wear this fashion more than a few times a year.
One thing that I was thinking of was maybe focusing on a different style. Angelic Pretty is Sweet Lolita, and the trend these days tends to be over-the-top (OTT). I am not an over the top person, and so I cannot honestly follow that trend.
On the other hand, aside from two black blouses, I don’t own anything that could be Gothic Lolita. I do want to get more Gothic Lolita items though, but so far, I’m not sure what to look for.
So perhaps Classic Lolita is the way to go? It’s elegant, and technically Fanplusfriend does classic and elegant gothic releases (but all year it’s been pirates and I’m not too into pirates). Innocent World is another brand that I’ve seen recommended. They have an English site, and some things look like they might fit me! But as you should expect with brand, it’s expensive.
I was lamenting being poor and general whining when I saw that F+F updated with a new dress, and it’s NOT PIRATES.
DAMNIT this was exactly the type of thing I wanted F+F to release. Pretty flower print, not too frilly but still very elegant.
This is gorgeous. Like the Fairytale print level of cute from last year.
They advertise a knitted shawl to go with it, however I am not super in love with it. Instead, I just want BOTH OF THESE COLORWAYS and we already know how that is a problem for me. But when I do get around to ordering this (maybe in November, unless it sells out but it doesn’t call this limited so I am confident I have time), I’ll get pink.
